comment Same python code works in arcgis python window, but fails in pyScripter
PS it looks like your code should read for row in cursor since that's the name you've given to the cursor a few lines earlier

comment Same python code works in arcgis python window, but fails in pyScripter
Hi Julia, welcome to GIS Stack Exchange. I've edited your code to make it more readable - you don't need to include all the comments, just the sections which are causing the problems. Can you please let us know the exact wording of the error message you're seeing?

comment I've installed OpenGeo Suite, how do I use it with Leaflet?
A suggestion is to start more slowly, and build experience in Leaflet and OpenGeo separately. Then integrate them once you are more familiar with both. At the moment, debugging will be a nightmare as there will be so many places to look

comment How to clearly display a huge shapefile with many point features?
What is your goal - eg, to have the points draw faster, or to answer a question with the data? Do you simply need to visualize this, or do you need to calculate something?

comment How to Start Web Mapping?
Since this answer was posted, Esri have released ArcGIS Online, which potentially removes the need for on-premises ArcGIS Server and SDE. There are free developer plans available to get started

comment Generating a Placemark (Google Earth) via information link
Welcome to GIS Stack Exchange. Can you please edit this question to include further details? What are you clicking on (eg, points within a feature layer) and what will the KML placemark contain?

comment Similarity between two or more trajectories
I agree with @phloem - the key question is "how do you define similar"? All routes go from A-B, so they are 'similar' in that sense. You need to provide more information on how you'll evaluate a successful outcome

comment How to determine the optimal raster resolution when interpolating a surface from points?
@blah238 could you expand on that, and how it would have an effect? If the positional accuracy was less than the minimum distance between the points, would the positional accuracy then be irrelevant? (eg say the points are accurate tp with ~1m and the closest distance between them is ~5m)

comment Printing from Feature Layer via ArcGIS API for JavaScript?
Welcome to GIS Stack Exchange. Can you please clarify "can't get it to work" - what have you tried, and what happens when you try it? What do you mean by "local feature layer" - do you have ArcGIS Server running on your local machine? Or are you running a web page on your local machine with ArcGIS Server somewhere on the web?

Thanks for the clarification on why the parentheses are required - that makes a lot of sense now

comment How to use OR in a CON statement, in the ArcGIS Raster Calculator?
@MichaelMiles-Stimson yeah it's weird since it works without the brackets if you use a simple expression. Googling "boolean or" finds that page you linked, too.

comment Send query to ArcGIS REST from OpenLayers app
I think you're on the right track with the AJAX call. Can you convert Mypolygon to Esri's JSON polygon format? The ArcGIS Server REST API's Query page has some hints, but doesn't include a complicated polygon. Does that page help?

comment MXDs don't open by double-clicking outside ArcMap, but do open from within ArcMap?
@MichaelMiles-Stimson thanks for the tip, but no dice. I don't care enough to reinstall so I think I'll just live with my 'personalised' version
